    We had a great time! Even though our hair got super frizzy and we got soaked from our bad paddling skills. Can't wait for next time. We may even bring some extra friends.

    No reservation needed, they always have plenty of Kayak's, and Mary T, I called and found out they don't rent wet suits. Most people wear a sweater in the morning, I wear a rash guard, but when the ocean is calm most of us don't get that wet.
